The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recently announced some changes on the definition of people who are classed as vaccinated against Covid-19.
Dr Rochelle Walensky, the Director of the CDC, said that the definition of fully vaccinated will now mean people who have also received booster jabs. The US health agency will now also stop referring to these people as “fully vaccinated,” but instead will call them people who are “up to date” with their vaccinations.
Walensky said: “What we are really working to do is pivot our language so that everyone is as up to date with their COVID-19 vaccines as they personally could be, should be based on when they got their last vaccine.
“So, importantly right now we are pivoting our language, we really want to make sure people are up to date.”

She added: “That means if you recently got your second dose, you’re not eligible for a booster. You’re up to date. If you are eligible for a booster and you haven’t gotten it, you’re not up to date and you need to get your booster in order to be up to date.”
Previously, Walensky said that the CDC’s definition of “fully vaccinated” was not going to change to include booster vaccines. She instead has tried to argue that using the term “up to date” is only meant to make US policy “consistent with how public health has historically viewed or even talked about how we recommend vaccines.”
However, it’s clear that this change in language is only to further blackmail Americans into getting a third dose, making it seem like being unvaccinated is a crime.
The CDC has tried hard in the previous months to push the latest booster and push the claim that a third dose would effectively protect recipients from Covid-19 and its various variants.
“These reports add more evidence to the importance of being up to date with [COVID-19] vaccinations. That means getting your primary series and getting boosted when eligible to protect against severe COVID-19,” said Walensky.
“There are still millions of people who are eligible for a booster dose and have not yet received one. As we continue to face the omicron variant representing over 99 percent of infections in the United States today, I urge all who are eligible to get their booster shot to get it as soon as possible.”
